Goodwill Drop-off Center

Goodwill Logo

Household items and clothing get a second chance at the Miramar Recycling Center where a Goodwill donation bin is set up at the entrance to help people donate for reuse items that would otherwise end up in the trash.

The Goodwill Drop-off Center at the Miramar Recycling Center is a continuation of a pilot program that took place during October 2002, when the City of San Diego, Goodwill Industries of San Diego County and the Allan Company joined together in celebrating the nationally recognized PDF icon Second Chances Month .


Drop-off hours are the same as the Miramar Recycling Center.

All items must be in good condition. Goodwill is unable to repair or use items with missing pieces.

  • clothing
  • furniture
  • household goods
  • jewelry
  • computer equipment (monitors, key boards and CPUs)
  • household hazardous waste
  • large household appliances such as water heaters, refrigerators, washers and dryers and broken items
  • anything with an electrical plug

To learn about locations that recycle unaccepted donation items or how to dispose of these items go to Environmental Services' Web pages on household hazardous waste.

All acceptable donations go directly to benefit Goodwill Industries of San Diego County. These items will be resold to help provide job training and paid work experience to San Diegans with disabilities and other barriers to employment.
